7:00 am
good morning, america. breaking news for our viewers in the west. white house shakeup. the communications director has resigned as president trump's son-in-law caught in the cross hairs with bad communications with russia. democrats and republicans express concerns. >> some administration officials are saying well, that's standard procedure. i don't think it is. >> new question this is morning. >> overnight devastating storms tear through the southeast injuring more than a dozen people. winds topping 60 miles an hour. flipping over homes one with a woman inside. the severe storms on the move. the northeast on alert right now. >> tiger woods under arrest. the golfing great taken into custody for driving under the influence. he's speaking out now claiming alcohol was not involved. can the superstar ever make a comeback? ♪ can't touch this
7:01 am
and base-brawl. the moment a giants pitcher throws a 98-mile-an-hour pitch right into a nationals star's hip. >> here we go. harper's charging the mound. >> the helmet flying, the two exchanging blows and both benches clearing as a massive fight erupts on the pitcher's mound. >> this is a good one, folks. >> batter and pitcher ejected. >> he's not going away. he is a big, strong dude. >> what those players are now saying this morning. ♪ can't touch this good morning, america. what a fight there on the baseball field. the giants pitcher, hunter strickland, you saw him, had to be dragged from the mound to the dugout from his teammates after exchanging punches with the nationals slugger bryce harper. >> this grudge goes back to 2014 when harper hit two home runs off strickland and this is the first time they've seen each
7:02 am
other since. >> two strong guys throwing hard punches. >> you don't want to be in the middle of that. >> a lot more on that coming up. breaking news out of washington and learned the communication director has resigned and could be the first move in a shake-up. new questions about the russia investigation and senator john mccain is calling vladimir putin a bigger threat than isis. and president trump appearing to throw his full support behind jared kushner who is now under investigation for trying to set up that back channel to communicate with russia. a lot is going on and our senior white house correspondent cecilia vega starts us off with all the latest from the white house. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. as you said, mike dubke's resignation was expected after three months on the job, could be part of a larger communications shake-up to start. president trump came home to a political crisis. white house aides here have been huddled over the weekend in full damage control mode. this morning, under increased scrutiny, the white house is
7:03 am
bracing for a shake-up. possibly in the mix, the president's former campaign manager corey lewandowski and former deputy campaign manager david bossie, both spotted leaving the white house on memorial day. over the holiday weekend, daughter ivanka seen at the white house too with the very lawyer president trump hired to handle the russia investigation. >> mr. president, did jared try to set up a back channel to the russians? >> reporter: those sightings happening after questions mount over why the president's son-in-law and adviser jared kushner attempted to create a communication back channel with the russian ambassador. kushner is not a target of the fbi's russia probe. the white house is insisting he did nothing wrong. >> it's both normal in my opinion and acceptable. >> reporter: but some members of the president's party are raising concern. >> my view of it is i don't like it. i just don't. i know that some administration officials are saying, well, that's standard procedure. i don't think it's standard procedure.
7:04 am
>> reporter: the president saying russian officials must be laughing at the u.s. and how a lame excuse for why the democrats lost the election has taken over fake news. but some say it might be time for kushner to take a leave of absence. ♪ in public, the president sticking to the script giving his first remarks since returning from overseas honoring fallen troops and their families on memorial day. >> it is because of families like yours that all of our families can live in safety and live in peace. >> reporter: now, with all of these questions mounting there's been talk here at the white house about the administration holding fewer press briefings, sean spicer does hold one today, george. it will be his first on-camera press briefing in 15 days. >> yeah, a lot surprised at that and thought maybe he wasn't coming back to do that. we'll talk more about that now with our chief white house correspondent jonathan karl and dan abrams. jon, let's begin with jared kushner. you reported on sunday that he was under some pressure to take
7:05 am
a leave of absence but he and the president pushing back pretty hard now. >> reporter: well, the president pushed back with a statement over the weekend saying he has complete confidence in jared kushner. but we are hearing his people in the west wing concerned that this will be such a big distraction for him, the fact that he is really now at the center of the russia investigation, not a target, george, no indication he will become a target, but clearly in the middle of the investigation a person of interest and you do have people very close to the president saying can he really do all of that and keep the massive portfolio that he has at the white house. very little indication that kushner himself wants to turn it down or the president wants him to. >> and you also have "the washington post" reporting this morning that jared kushner gets his own security clearances and some democrats say he should lose his security clearance. >> reporter: like other senior officials here in the west wing, he gets regular intelligence briefings, and you heard most recently from the top democrat on the house intelligence committee that that clearance that he has that enables him to
7:06 am
get those briefings should be revoked. that's another way of saying he should basically leave or dramatically downscale what he does given the work he does on national security, and the importance of the role he plays those intelligence briefings are absolutely essential to being able to advise the president. >> let's talk to dan abrams about the legal side. as jon said, so far jared kushner not announced as a target of the investigation. what kind of legal vulnerabilities does he face? >> well, right now there is no legal issue, crime that we know of that he may have committed. we can talk about possibilities. let's remember, the key here that we're talking about is what did jared kushner do before donald trump became president? people are saying, oh, you know, back channels are normal. back channels are normal. the question is, is it normal to have a back channel before he becomes president? the answer to that is, no. >> is it normal to communicate through russian channels. >> exactly. and so the question there becomes, why? and who ordered it? why was he having these meetings with russian officials?
7:07 am
who asked him to have these meetings? why is that important? that becomes important in the bigger scandal regarding russia and the question there is, who was he talking to about what? >> we know he was talking to a russian banker as well who is close to vladimir putin. the banker says this was about business, kushner's business dealings. the white house says he was acting as a transition official. >> look, that is a conflict but i think he would be better off if he was doing this as a private citizen because the bottom line is, you simply can't start doing business in the government before you're in the government. when you've been inaugurated, you're president and then you have your team. when you're part of the transition team you have to be very careful in terms of what you do. you asked about the law. there is the logan act which we talked about before. >> you can't do diplomacy on your own. >> that's right. you can't do it as a private citizen. >> we saw the announcement. mike dubke is out. broader changes could be coming
7:08 am
as well and there had been talk about the president getting off twitter. this morning he is at it again, taking on germany and talking about the russian story. >> reporter: absolutely. i think there's talk getting the president off twitter before inaugurated. hasn't happened. look what he's doing in terms of germany. he says we have a massive trade deficit with germany. plus they pay far less than they should on nato and the military. very bad for the u.s. this will change. so keeping that battle up with angela merkel. >> said the russians must be laughing at the u.s. now as well. jon karl, thanks very much. all right, and now overseas and new challenge from north korea conducting its third ballistic missile test in just over three weeks. analysts saying that with each new test the north appears to be getting closer to its goal of building a missile that could reach the u.s. with a nuclear weapon. let's bring in abc's chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz. and, martha, tell us what we know about the latest test and how concerned u.s. defense officials are. >> reporter: amy, there is growing concern. this was a short-range ballistic
7:09 am
missile but with every missile test the north koreans learn something, and this one was a success. we're getting the first images from north korea just this morning showing the launch with leader kim jong-un supervising the test. the missile traveled several hundred miles into the sea of japan right between north korea and japan, amy. >> what is the white house saying, martha, right now, and what are the options for a possible u.s. response to this? >> reporter: well, president trump is tweeting about his displeasure but this is the ninth missile test since he took office. but today the u.s. is trying something for the first time, a test of an intercept of a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile. the mock warhead launched from a pacific island with the ground-based intercepter launched from a base in california. if that intercept is successful, the so-called kill vehicle will stop the mock warhead in midflight over the pacific. there have been successes of
7:10 am
shorter range tests but not the long-range tests, amy. >> we just heard president trump tweeting again about germany this morning. let's turn to german chancellor angela merkel suggesting europe might not be able to completely rely on the u.s. after meeting with president trump. talk about the impact on u.s./german relations. >> well, this comes after the g7 summit which, of course, president trump attended. angela merkel saying the times in which we can fully count on others are somewhat over, she said, and so all i can say is that we europeans must really take our destiny into our own hands. germany has not responded to the latest president trump tweets, however, amy. >> stay tuned for that. martha raddatz, thanks so much. michael. we're going to go to that severe weather breaking out along the east coast overnight. the storms bringing wind, rain and hail. injuring more than a dozen people, and ginger has all the latest. good morning. >> good morning. daunting images coming out of the county east of fayetteville, north carolina. see that staircase there? there used to be a mobile home behind it.
7:11 am
you can see it in the background twisted and tossed. and look at this other video. several structures, up to 18 homes were changed and were flipped and you can see the very latest coming in just an hour ago or so. all of these images from the overnight damaging winds or tornado. we'll learn more about that later. i really want to warn everybody about the cold front, pennsylvania and new york in the threat region today. damaging wind our main threat later this afternoon and evening. michael. >> i'm waiting to throw it to ginger and she says everything is perfect. sunny everywhere. >> we won't be here. that won't happen. >> all right, ginger, thank you. new developments in that deadly train attack in oregon. the suspect due in court facing charges for killing two good samaritans who reportedly tried to stop him from harassing women as he went on an anti-muslim rant. president trump saying the violent attacks are unacceptable. the victims were standing up to hate and intolerance. our prayers are with them. abc's clayton sandell is in portland with more on this developing story. good morning, clayton.
7:12 am
>> reporter: good morning, amy. this is the courthouse where the suspect will be arraigned later this morning. detectives say they're getting lots of tips about this suspect's behavior even before this alleged attack. a brutal crime against good samaritans just trying to help out strangers. this morning, the man police say is responsible for a stabbing spree on a portland train last friday set to be arraigned in court charged with two counts of aggravated murder, one count of attempted murder. >> one was stabbed in the neck. the other in the stomach. >> reporter: according to police 35-year-old jeremy christian targeted two young female riders one wearing a hijab allegedly taunting them with anti-muslim rantings. >> he told us to go back to saudi arabia and to get out of his country. >> reporter: that's when three good samaritans stepped in trying to calm him down but according to police, christian stabbed them. two of those men, 23-year-old taliesin myrddin namkai-meche and 53-year-old army veteran ricky best were killed. the third, 21-year-old micah
7:13 am
fletcher surviving sent home from the hospital overnight releasing this statement. i want the muslim community to know that they have a home here in portland and are loved. i want to honor the families of those who lost their brave fathers, sons and brothers. his mother met and thanked the man who saved her son. >> he's sitting there screaming out somebody help me, help me, i've been stabbed. >> if he hadn't been there, then there would be three dead people today. >> reporter: the suspect has a known criminal history and his extremist views on display last month in this facebook video. >> i'm the dude that promoted shooting anyone that tries to disarm you. >> reporter: and this morning the teenage son of ricky best remembering his father. >> i miss him. we all miss him. he was a hero. >> reporter: and christian's former lawyer from an old case says he appeared to suffer from mental health issues. if he is convicted of aggravated
7:14 am
murder he could face the death penalty. george. >> you can see a clear contrast between hatred and heroism. clayton, thanks very much. we move on to a scuffle inside the texas legislature over the state's new law that cracks down on sanctuary cities. tempers boiled over after immigration services was called on protestors. senior justice correspondent pierre thomas has the details. good morning. >> reporter: george, good morning. immigration remains the hot button issue, tensions rising in texas as the debate about the role of local police in helping to enforce federal immigration law intensifies. hundreds of protesters descending on the texas capitol interrupting lawmakers opposing the state's new law banning so-called sanctuary cities passed earlier this month. the protesters getting inside the house gallery sparking a scuffle between legislators. one state representative told others that he'd called the immigration and customs enforcement on the protesters. >> you did what? and he said, yeah, i called i.c.e. >> reporter: the texas law requires cities to comply with
7:15 am
federal authorities that request local law enforcement detain those suspected of being in the country illegally and allows officers to ask anyone they're detaining about their immigration status. something critics say is an invitation for racial profiling. the trump administration is trying to withhold federal funding to sanctuary cities, those that limit cooperation with federal immigration enforcement. the administration issued an executive order in january tying billions in federal funding to immigration enforcement, an order that was blocked last month by a federal judge. some cities including new york, philadelphia and chicago are opposing the trump administration immigration crackdown. the justice department is threatening to deny grants to those cities who don't comply. amy. >> all right, pierre thomas, thank you. now to a tragic incident at a zoo in england where a tiger killed a zookeeper. an investigation is now under way, and abc's alex perez has the story. >> reporter: this morning this zoo is investigating how one of its tigers killed a staff member. identified by the bbc as 33-year-old rosa king in what
7:16 am
the park is calling a freak accident. monday morning police responded to a call for a serious incident at the hammerton zoo park in england. an animal center located 80 miles outside london. officers and even a medical helicopter racing to the scene. >> we heard a scream and then one of the zookeepers shouted run to us. >> reporter: the zoo saying its staff is distressed, adding that at no point during the incident did any animals escape their enclosures and that at no point was public safety affected in any way. king, who was passionate about animals, defended the conservation efforts zoos provide for malayan tigers. >> malayan tigers, only 300 left in the wild and they've been poached. at least they're safe here and we can work on increasing the numbers. >> reporter: this isn't the first time a trainer has been hurt while working with zoo animals. just last october, a close call for an animal trainer at a florida fair viciously attacked by a tiger while students
7:17 am
watched the horror unfold. the trainer's partner quickly stepping in helping save her from its jaws. >> he never bit. it was never a vicious attack. he never growled. he just oh, let's play, we're playing? >> reporter: officials say the tiger involved in the attack is alive and investigators now working to figure out what exactly what went wrong here, amy. >> alex perez, thanks so much. we appreciate it. you have more on a little fight that went on in the baseball field. >> we'll switch gears and talk about the base-brawl, everybody. take a look at this bench-clearing brawl between a san francisco giant and a washington national. you saw that pitch right there thrown by hunter strickland, 98 miles per hour into the hip of washington nationals slugger bryce harper. it's going to leave a bruise. as soon as he was struck harper flung his helmet, charged the mound. the two traded punches and the benches cleared. both of those men were ejected from the game, and afterwards harper said you never want to get suspended but sometimes you just got to go and get him. >> i'm surprised he can move after taking that.

quote what happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. i didn't realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly. that mugshot a stark contrast to woods' iconic career. winning 79 pga tour events, 14 majors and his reign coming to a screeching halt after an suv crash outside his home in 2009. revealing a public cheating scandal leading to a public divorce with his wife and sponsorship losses worth tens of millions of dollar. >> i am deeply sorry for my selfish behavior. >> in recent years the golfer undergoing four back surgeries. the most recent this april. >> tiger the golfer has played three tournaments worldwide in two year. >> reporter: woods talking about the health struggles. >> the mind is sharp.

7:39 am
presentation was already in the works when they decided to end their popular orca show six months ago. they say they're now using the whales in an educational capacity but critics warn nothing has really changed. seaworld's iconic killer whale show just got a little less splashy. this weekend the san diego park debuting a new educational presentation called orca encounter to replace what was once one of its biggest attractions. the so-called shamu show. orca encounter includes a film about the animals' behaviors and while they do breach and splash the audience, tricks are not the focus and trainers no longer ride or swim with the whales. the new show receiving mixed reviews. some calling it informative and poignant. others calling it boring saying it features very little action using the orcas. this just the latest change at seaworld. the park announcing last year it would no longer breed its orcas following public outcry.
7:40 am
the park has been trying to revamp its image following years of declining revenue, lagging attendance and negative publicity brought on by the 2013 documentary "blackfish" which took a critical look at whales in captivity specifically tilikum involved in three deaths including trainer dawn brancheau in 2010. you think they're living a full, happy life? >> absolutely. it's so important to educate people about these animals. otherwise they're not going to care to want to protect them. >> reporter: that film's director feels seaworld has made some progress but not enough. >> they're still swimming around in concrete tanks. my hope would be that seaworld would just kind of embrace the opportunity to truly evolve and to retire these whales into seaside sanctuaries. >> reporter: officials say they have never been more proud how their presenting their animals calling it a pivotal moment and
7:41 am
continue to use the whales as long as they have them in an educational capacity. >> okay, kayna, thanks. let's bring in jack hanna, host of "jack hanna's into the wild" and "wild countdown." is this the fix seaworld needs? >> yes, it's a fix. it is a beautiful fix. some of the things i just heard are totally inaccurate. whales all over the world, seaworld will always be a repository, no one after 50 some years of research can ever top that. this new show, george, i saw it last night on the computer, watched it twice. you know me. you've known me for years. i'm a hyper person. i was drawn to it. how they smell, how they work together. how they communicate. how they hunt. all there in the actual video you see out there in their natural habitat. to make statements is totally inaccurate. they're bred well, the research, you know, george, you can't beat this new thing they've done. >> you saw it. obviously you love it. you heard some of those critics say it was boring. what do you think that this is not offering that people were seeing before?

>> what do they want? they talk about releasing the whales back in the pens. look at the results. a lot of them kill themselves. not only are they in great shape we have to understand something, touch the heart to reach the mind. we have to understand what these whales are. in case you see a whale you fall in love with these animals. they're beautiful and for someone to tell me in the wild they do research, yes, they're good researchers but they know everything about the whale. how long they live, what they've eaten. the education there over the years is vital. this new documentary is absolutely unbelievable. i've watched it twice and i'm not a person to sit down and watch anything much on tv. with animals it has to be interesting. i don't know what more they could do. to see them hunt, george, i only filmed that once in 30 years, that is phenomenal. when you watch these animals together work as a group. >> could these animals survive in the wild? >> could these animals survive in the wild? no, i would not do that. they were born in a beautiful situation at seaworld and have every care.
7:43 am
let's talk about the pens or rock walls and stuff. i would not, george, you know me all these years, 40 years of doing this, they take care of their animals than most people throughout the world. they're happy animals. they breed, they eat. no more you could say than see a whale, in 1973 i saw the whales, to this day my girls said, dad, we'll never forget seeing those whales. that's why it's so important what they do. >> strong endorsement from jack. you can see his "wild countdown" saturday mornings on most abc stations. michael. coming up, how safe are you at a water park? new details about what may have led to this scary incident. and is this the future way to get around? the hoverboard drone delivery that has everyone buzzing. we'll be back in two minutes. i no longer live with the uncertainties of hep c. wondering, what if? i let go of all those feelings. because i am cured with harvoni.

harvoni is a revolutionary treatment for the most common type of chronic hepatitis c. it's been prescribed to more than a quarter million people. and is proven to cure up to 99% of patients who have had no prior treatment with 12 weeks. certain patients can be cured with just 8 weeks of harvoni. before starting harvoni, your doctor will test to see if you've ever had hepatitis b, which may flare up and cause serious liver problems during and after harvoni treatment. tell your doctor if you've ever had hepatitis b, a liver transplant, other liver or kidney problems, hiv or any other medical conditions and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements. taking amiodarone with harvoni can cause a serious slowing of your heart rate. common side effects of harvoni include tiredness, headache and weakness. ready to let go of hep c? ask your hep c specialist about harvoni. ♪ ♪

7:46 am
waterslide landing on the concrete over the weekend. luckily that young man is safe and sound and, boy, just scary incident but did raise questions about how safe these water parks are and alan korn with the child safety water organization is joining us now and thank you for joining us, alan. we just saw that video. we've seen some of this in the past but how common are these accidents? >> well, thankfully they don't happen all that much but as rides get larger, taller, faster, the dangers increase also, so you can't throw caution to the wind. they do happen. in fact, last year, a child was killed on the -- what was marketed as the tallest slide in the world. this was in kansas and the child hit his head on the slide as he was going down and unfortunately unlike this case he died. >> yeah, it's so scary as we're coming up on water park season. i know my kids like to go to our nearby one multiple times during the year so as a parent, i want
7:47 am
to know who is in charge of regulating these rides, keeping them safe? >> well, in my view the responsibility is two parts. one are the designers of the rides. i mention they get faster, kids want faster and higher and stronger and the rides get more dangerous so you have to design these rides before you open to the public in a proper fashion and then the second is the owners and operators of these parks. you have to inspect them daily, in fact, i'd inspect them more than once daily. in this particular case i looked at the video. it looked like an awful lot of water was going down that tube. this was the first day this park was opened. maybe that needed to be recalibrated a bit to make it safe. we don't know. there will be an investigation but that's one thing to look at in this particular case. >> but as parents with kids who love to go on these waterslides in the summer, is there anything we can look for? you said about the water. we wouldn't know that. anything we can look for? >> we want kids to enjoy water parks and beat the summer heat at water parks around the country. you do not need to wrap them in
7:48 am
bubble paper but it is a good idea too before you release them into the park for the day of fun to remind them to pay attention to the instructions at the top and the bottom of the slide in this case, the posted qualifications for rides and behavior is important also so those are good things to remind kids of at the beginning of the day and throughout. >> all right, alan, we appreciate it. thank you. very good tips. now something most of us have to see to believe, a daredevil delivering the game ball at the portuguese cup final on what looks like a hoverboard made of drones. becky worley joins us with more. we've been waiting for this since "back to the future." is it finally here? >> ah, well, it was cool. the pilot took off from inside the stadium and brought the ball to the ref. probably a flight of 100 yards. he hit 200 feet in altitude and it looks like ten drone rotors connected to a platform of sorts.
7:49 am
he has a remote feel in his hand that controls the drone power, altitude and thrust. but he is steering by leaning. he's basically surfing his way to the landing spot. >> well, i can't surf anywhere water, land, not any -- not good for me. who created this and what was the inspiration for them to create this? >> well, some say it's the mind of stan lee come to life, they have called out the green goblin, enemy of spider-man, the obvious comparison. there's some rumors, though, it was inspired by marty mcfly's hoverboard from "back to the future." we look to the movies for all our cool gadgets, don't we? >> and it's been a dream since 1980 whatever so the big question, we all want to know, could this actually become a legit casual mode of transportation? >> well, you know, it goes farther back than the '80s, in 1957 the hiller flying platform was introduced. it looks like a guy hovering around in a tire. then there was -- remember all
7:50 am
the jetpack flying guys at the super bowls. that started in the '60s. we really want a flying device that's like a motorcycle. so much autonomy. >> i wanted one of those. >> there is more access to drones and the technology needed to make them. one entrepreneur, a guy making the fly board uses jet engines powered by kerosene fuel. but the answer to your question, amy, no, not yet. these are so not ready for mass market. all the up thrust that makes it possible means they're way too dangerous. you lean into a turn, lean too far, you flip. the up thrust turns to down thrust and you are plummeting to the earth at terminal velocity. >> i'm out. i'm out. >> that guy is a 10 drone. i'm probably like a 15 drone. >> we would definitely put money into its stock. >> coming up next. the new guidelines about hands only cpr that could help save a life.

8:14 am
to save someone's life is to do hands only cpr. >> reporter: the numbers are staggering. more than 90% of people who suffer out of hospital cardiac arrests will die. 70% of cardiac arrests happen at home. >> we want to do nothing short of changing the social norm by empowering people with knowing what to do. >> reporter: joining this crusade celebs like michael j. fox, julianne margulies and michael bloomberg all among the famous faces lending their help to #handsonlycpr. >> check to see if they're breathing, call 911 and start start chest compressions. >> it truly is life saving. >> reporter: doctors stress that speed is key. if you see someone who is not breathing and wait for medical help, well, then it's most likely too late. that's why this campaign is about everyone learning to do compressions. amy. >> all right, jesse, let's bring in dr. jen ashton.
8:15 am
so explain to us, jen, why these recommendations changed? >> it really has to do with statistics. there are about 350,000 out of hospital attacks a year. survival rate is poor. 90% die. for every one minute of down time without cpr survival rate drops by 10% and studies show cpr saves lives and hands only saves lives so that's the take home message. >> why are chest xregs alone enough to save a life. >> it's two main reason, number one, if you witness someone drop out of a hospital, they actually have enough oxygen in their blood if it's circulated and that's what the chest compressions are doing. the other thing is it's been shown and known that most lay public bystanders when doing the rescue breathing were oftentimes not doing it correctly and there would be a leak around the mouth, air would go into the stomach instead of the lungs so,
8:16 am
again, the key is initiating cpr. >> so for most people, the thought of having to do cpr on someone especially in that traumatic moment when they drop is a terrifying thing. you've performed it many times. what advice would you give people? >> so, in a hospital setting this is what i would tell my interns at the first code because even in a hospital people are nervous and i would tell them, this person is already technically dead. you cannot hurt them. all you can do is help and that is really important emotionally. logistically this needs to be driven home. we heard it in the piece. it bears repeating. activate 911 which means pointing to someone you in the black dress call 911 if you're on a cell phone tell the operator that and then start chest compressions hard and fast, we have the song a lot of people will remember the beat ♪ just dance ♪ >> 100 to 120 beats per minute but if you forget the song -- >> i always heard "stayin' alive" was one. >> any song hard and fast.

pastime. and as summer approaches youth baseball is getting under way for millions of kids from coast to coast. when kids first start out playing little league it's all about the love of the game. >> i love this time of year, sun is out and little league season is here. >> who is going to get a hit today? >> before long the pressure to win pushes some kids into playing baseball year round or on multiple teams. dr. jeffrey dugas says more and more kids are suffering long-term injuries. the first sign of a problem, little league elbow. a painful precursor to the condition that leads to recon truck tiff elbow surgery or what's known as tomorrow economy john surgery. repetitive throwing can cause increased stress to the growth part in the inner part of the elbow resulting in inflorida make and sometimes the growth plate gets separated from the bone which may require surgery. >> start pitching around age 9 and that's when it starts and that's the real shame. some of these kids end up not being able to continue and play
8:24 am
a sport they love. >> reporter: jack is one of the lucky ones. he's been playing baseball since he was 5 but the 13-year-old pitcher recently tore part of the growth plate in his throwing elbow from the bone. >> right when i came through is when i felt it. >> he putted off a little bit of the growth plate where the tommy john ligament attaches and explains the pop and the, oh, no, that hurt. >> reporter: dr. dugas dered his injury did not require surgery yet for jack's mother jody it was a real wake-up call. >> we didn't expect the diagnosis. i was thinking tendinitis, inflammation. i was shocked. >> reporter: while demanding sports parents have made headlines mom and dad aren't always to blame. >> in the end they get hyper competitive but the kids do too. >> it's hard for him because he comes home and he'll get in the car and say, well, this person threw so many strikes today and, you know, in his mind he's worried about players getting -- taking his spot in i love it. i want the coaches to give me as
8:25 am
much as they want to give me. >> what's the one thing you miss the most. >> striking other kids out. who doesn't want to strike other kids out? >> dr. dugas says jack should be able to play again in just a few months. meanwhile, he has a message for all parent. >> at all times it should be fun. that's the thing the parents have 0 get across is that winning is not the only part of having fun. playing the game is still having fun and they have to enjoy just the playing of the game, not the winning of the game. >> more serious injuries like reconstructive elbow surgery used to be seen in college and pro athletes but now with a recent study nearly 60% of tomorrow economy john surgeries are at the high school level, some as young as 13 and there are three main ways according to the american sports medicine institute that we can prevent this. one is if you're tired, if you feel that pain in your elbow and shoulder stop. the whole idea of playing through it, don't do it. the second is when you think about overhand throwing, take
8:26 am
two to three months a year, sometimes even four months and just don't throw overhand whether it's baseball, football, go climb a tree, go have fun. and the third is making sure that you're not trying to light up the radar gun. i feel like this is the biggest one, that max effort, you're 9, 10, 11 years old. what happened to the purity of playing catch and not trying to throw the ball as hard as you can? >> well, you know what, jessica, like how much do you bench? it's just a challenging thing for most kids out there. you're a mother and also a coach of a little leaguer. what are the biggest challenges the parents of these kids face? >> i'm going through it right now. this is so close to home for me and when you think about it, it's the pressure versus the love of the game. get the kids out there and having fun and not just out there trying to get a pro scholarship. >> all right. thank you.
